• Useful and medicinal properties of the bed liner

    The patient is taken to bed. Before serving, the vessel should be rinsed with hot water, as it must be clean and warm. Serve the vessel very carefully. The left hand is brought under the patient's sacrum and simultaneously lifted, and the right one carefully puts the ship and brings it under the sacrum with the cape forward, so that the buttocks hang slightly over its opening. Then the patient is covered with a blanket, and after evacuation of the intestine the ship is immediately carried away. It is advisable to isolate the patient during the emptying of the intestine with a screen. After defecation, the bedbed is gently removed from under the patient so as not to spill the contents, cover with oilcloth or newspaper and take out to the toilet. The patient is washed away and the area of ​​the anus is wiped dry.

    The contents of the vessel are poured into the toilet bowl. In patients with intestinal infections, stools are filled with a disinfectant solution for decontamination and only then poured into the sewer. Use 10% solution of bleach, 3% chloramine solution, 3% solution of lysol or dry lime at the rate of 1: 2.Intestinal secretions are mixed with a double amount of disinfectant solution, left for 2 hours and poured into a toilet bowl. After that, the vessel is well washed with hot water, detergents and in all cases disinfected with the above solutions.

    Weak patients with a small subcutaneous fat layer, propensity to form bedsores, as well as incontinence should be given inflatable rubber bedpans, which, due to elasticity, have the least pressure on the sacrum and, at the same time, protect the skin from contact with discharge and provide prevention of pressure ulcers. The vessel should not be tightly inflated.

    Under it, you must put an oilcloth, and not put directly on the sheet. Carers should regularly and on time empty the ship.
